Assemblyman Will Barclay was re-elected leader of the Republican caucus on Tuesday.

While controlled by Democrats, Barclay, a Central New York Assemblyman has been leader of the conference since the departure of longtime Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb.


“I am profoundly grateful to the members of this Conference for the confidence and trust they’ve placed in me. It’s an honor to work alongside them,” Barclay said. “Day in and day out, they’re fighting to improve the lives of the people they represent. With the start of a new legislative session right around the corner, I’m looking forward to getting back to Albany and continuing our efforts to make New York safer, more affordable and more prosperous for families and businesses.”

Democrats will hold a supermajority in the Assembly. Democrat Carl Heastie is expected to be re-elected as leader of that conference.
